Levels

Open

We will move at a slower pace than the Advance track.

Lindy Hop: Not for complete Beginners, but this track will accommodate a range of experience. You will come with the understanding that a more experienced dancer can learn from a more beginner dancer, as well as the other way around. At a minimum, you must already dance your swing basics comfortably: Swingout, lindy circle, Charleston, you know some variations in styling and rhythm. You are dancing on time to the music at a range of speeds.

Solo: You may know the classic and common jazz steps such as those in the Shim Sham. You do not need experience in African dance. It may be that you have not have danced other solo dance styles before.

Advance

– We will move at a faster/ more intense pace than the Open track.

– In Lindy Hop, your steps and technique are of high quality and you are now focusing on improvisation, personal interpretation and sensitivity to music. You are in control of and able to adapt your Lindy Hop to reflect different styles and interpretations. You will come with the understanding that there is always something that you can work and improve on in your dancing.

Solo: You have good body awareness and are comfortable dancing solo, whether in authentic jazz or other solo dance styles. You do not need experience in African dance.
